Come as you are! 🏳️‍🌈

The Lutheran Student Community of Penn State is an intentionally safe place – open to all students – regardless of faith background, church denominational history, economic status, political affiliation, ancestry, color, national origin, race, sexual orientation or gender identity, disability or handicap, political persuasion, age, or academic standing.

Worship with us ⛪

There are plenty of opportunities with our community. Weekly worship is offered Thursdays on campus at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center, as well as Sunday services in the morning and evening at Grace Lutheran Church on South Garner Street.

Need someone to talk to? 👂🏼

Don’t know what you believe? Struggling with relationships? Need a listening ear? If you are feeling distressed or troubled, if you can’t quite sort things out, if you just want to talk, you are welcome to contact our Campus Minister, Alicia Anderson. Part of why our staff is here is so that we can provide emotional, spiritual, and other support to students when they most need it!

Alicia is available by email at ara2@psu.edu or by text or phone at (814) 360-0601.
